Vertical Orchestra 2017: 21st Century Guitars

Vancouver Public Library Promenade
350 W Georgia St, Vancouver, BC

November 7, 2017
Afternoon Show 1:00 pm
Evening Show 10:15 pm
Facebook event page

Presented as part of ISCM World New Music Days 2017 in Vancouver, Canada.

Redshift Music Society is creating another of their famous Vertical Orchestra events; this time it’s electric! Vertical Orchestra 2017: 21st Century Guitars, is a dynamic spatial event which features an army of electric guitarists and bass guitarists performing in the atrium of the downtown branch of the Vancouver Public Library (350 West Georgia).

21st Century Guitars continues the tradition of Redshift’s Vertical Orchestra events in the Vancouver Public Library: musicians are dispersed throughout the gallery’s seven levels (including the “moat” below the library main entrance), performing site-specific music written by Canadian composers.

Critically praised as “immensely enjoyable and equally unusual concert experience” (Georgia Straight), Vertical Orchestra events have been featured as part of the 2008, 2009, and 2010 Cultural Olympiads, enjoying capacity crowds and serving as a vital means of connecting Canadian music with thousands of people who would not otherwise seek out a concert of classical music. 21st Century Guitars announces Redshift’s return to the VPL atrium after a six year hiatus.

A team of seven award-winning Canadian composers will create new compositions for multiple guitar ensemble for this unique concert event. The composers are Tim Brady, James Beckwith Maxwell, Lisa Cay Miller, Jordan Nobles, Benton Roark, Alfredo Santa Ana, and Rita Ueda.

Presented as part of ISCM World New Music Days 2017.

Erato: The Living Ocean

Saturday, November 26, 2016

Orpheum Annex
823 Seymour Street Vancouver, BC

Canada is a maritime nation, with the longest coastline in the world bordering three oceans. Each day that we are alive, we literally live and breathe the ocean. It doesn’t matter where you live or what you do. If you are presently alive on the planet Earth, your life is inextricably intertwined with the ocean.

That’s why Living Oceans Society is working to ensure a healthy ocean by protecting the four pillars of ocean ecosystems: habitat, biodiversity, food webs, and water quality.

Erato is proud to partner with Living Oceans Society on this program of music inspired by the Sea.
